the case of florida v. jardines, it's just over an hour. >> we'll hear argument first this morning in case 11-564, florida v. jardines. mr. garre. >> thank you, mr. chief justice, and may it please the court, in the three prior cases in which this court has held that a dog sniff is not a search, this court has emphasized that a dog sniff is unique, both in terms of the manner in which information is obtained and the nature of the information revealed. as to the latter point, this court has emphasized that a drug detection dog reveals only the presence of contraband, and that no one has a legitimate expectation of privacy in that. >> i mean, that just can't be a proposition that we can accept across the board. nobody under that view has an interest in contraband in their home. the question is, can you find out the contraband? it's just a circular argument. and if -- and in the -- was it the caballes case that talked about that, if i have the right name? that was where the contraband was visible, it was almost like the smoking gun falls out. well, of course, there's no interest in the smokin
to reconsider is laid on the table. for what purpose does the gentleman from florida seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and pass h.r. 6374 to designate the facility of the department of veterans' affairs located at 180 martin drive in carrollton, georgia, as the trinka davis veterans village. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. caller: h r. 6374, a bill to designate the facile i have to the dotcht veterans affairs located at 180 martin drive in carrollton, georgia, as the trinka davis veterans village. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from florida, mr. miller, and the gentlewoman from florida, ms. brown, each will control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from florida. mr. miller: i yield myself such time as i i might consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognize. mr. miller: the legislation before us does in fact designate the veterans affairs building in carrollton georgia as the trinka davis veterans village. trinka was a businessperson who desired that her estate be used t
: you covered jeb bush in florida. >> he has been a leading mathematician. he said the republican party needs to embrace immigration reform, not just for political reasons but for economic reasons. there is common ground when it comes to immigration on the one aspect of immigration reform that deals with high skilled workers. we need to make sure the brightest who come here to get educated are staying here. because of the other issues involving immigration, border security, folks not highly skilled, that muddies the water. perhaps this election will be the frying pan on the head of the republican party. >> there was talk about romney's change in tone. talk about this message versus substance debate they will probably have to have. should they just be nicer to hispanics? >> the public is more informed than it ever has been because of the internet. we are not getting the job done here in washington. the same is true for the democrats. i was struck by the president's speech. he's never followed up on the 2008 speech. he was not able to fill those lofty promises. he was very powerful. humil
on this motion will be postponed. for what purpose does the gentleman from florida seek recognition? mr. bilirakis: mr. speaker, i move that the house suspend the rules and pass h.r. 5997, as amended. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 5997, a bill to amend the homeland security act of 2002 to codify authority under existing grant guidance authorizing use of urban area security initiative and state homeland security grant program funding for enhancing medical preparedness, medical surge and mass prophylaxis capabilities. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from florida, mr. bilirakis, and the gentleman from mississippi, mr. thompson, each will control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from florida. mr. bilirakis: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include any extraneous material on the bill under consideration. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. bilirakis: thank you. mr. spea
think by this hour while they're still counting votes in florida and made for the next week -- there is an even greener light. we know.what the president was reelected and democrats picked up seats in the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think thought even as late as today. the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you know prescind returns from florida. i would like to spend more time on why this has happened and what it means for us going forward. i share the admiration all around 4 president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. the planned it and executed it, and it every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed and went out and got them. they began before election day thinking favorable votes in states where they had put people on the ground to produce. take ileus appear -- technically a superb operation. perhaps some people will think by the fourth or fifth visit -- it did work. the point i wa
in a blue or red state or voted in an urban, suburban or rural prestinket, a dozen states including florida, pennsylvania, colorado, ohio, new york, massachusetts, wisconsin, south carolina, montana, tennessee, hawaii, arizona, rhode island and my own commonwealth of virginia encountered significant but avoidable barriers to casting their ballots. this is not a republican or a democratic problem. this is truly a national bipartisan challenge. it's not a crisis, and to quote president obama, it's one we have to fix. one that -- the senior citizen who may not have had the stamina to stand in line for five hours or the young working mom waiting to vote, worried about the fact that she won't get to the front of the line in time to pick up her kids at daycare. the experience of our constituents on election day amounts to a modern day poll tax on all americans that must be eliminated. 1 years after the 2000 presidential election exposed the deep structural problems that plague our decentralized voting system, our troubles appeared to have worsened, not improved. voting machines, malfunctioning ma
, florida and virginia, which were going to be my next two states he would need to win. they are still undecided at this point. with obama slightly ahead in both of them. basically it looks like it stops. he would have needed to do florida and virginia and then he would need to get into colorado, iowa, new hampshire. even winning all of that he would be three short of 270. it was pretty clear going into election day that a whole lot had to happen right for romney to get over to 70. it did not happen. it seemed to peter out either after north carolina in that sequence or maybe even florida or virginia wants all the votes are counted, maybe one or theoretically both of them fall to him, but probably not. that is where it was. there was one. back around -- looking at the sequencing of it. you go back to before the first debate. mitt romney was dead in the water and not moving. he was not far behind the for the first debate. it looks like a really hard it 3-5 points. i had a chance to look that the focus groups, i got the distinct impression that a lot of the undecideds that were out there
, the gentleman from florida, mr. mica, and the gentleman from west virginia, mr. rahall, each will control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from florida. mr. mica: first of all, mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous materials on s. 19356. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. mica: mr. speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mica: thank you so much, mr. speaker and my colleagues. welcome back. the congress is back in session today. i guess all people's property and welfare and everything else is now at risk, but i'm pleased to be here to help lessen some of that risk that is a threat which has been offered to the united states in the form of a european union emissions trading scheme. and the bill that i propose today is s. 1956, which replaces a bill that was passed a year ago in october of 2011, and that's h.r. 2594. that's the legislation which i authored which basically does the same thing. and
arabs the oil and jews the electoral college. [laughter] they were cluttered in swing states in florida >> -- >> norm, you're going to respond to the diamond in the rough. >> right, so it protects small minorities because it was protects them, and finally, the idea that who is going to be the leader of this country will be a tie and that so many tens of millions of people are disenfranchised because they live in a blue state or a red state. my thought was, and i think it's just controversial that if you awarded by federal statute or institution, what the order would be, one electoral vote to the winner of the popular vote, that would eliminate a tie, and it would make everybody feel that that -- if they wanted to feel that way, that makes everyone feel they were part of the process, even if they live in a 70/30 swing state, red or blue, well, i went in and vote. >> yeah. have you thought about the issues? >> yeah. you know, a couple points ben made. first is it's a rare election that is not decided in some fashion at the margins. yet, it does result in an electoral college bonus. ronald
vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, also a cuban-american. congress obviously will be critical in this whole issue, but
of the biggest swing states will be the first states that cone in -- virginia, florida, ohio, they have the most of the perot vote. north carolina is in the next although most people expected to go for romney. we will have a good idea which direction things are headed, but if things get close, we will be talking at the end of the night about colorado, iowa, some of the states in the west like nevada, perhaps. i think we will have a pretty good idea about what is happening early in the night and from there we will see whether the western states actually matter or not. >> i think that va is a very telling state. we focus on va a lot because it is right next door to washington, d.c. but the demographics are very similar to the rest of america. heavily democratic an urban area, nerve -- northern virginia, a very conservative, rural, southern virginia. the race and the demographics is similar to the country at large. the growing hispanic population. also a significant african- american population. if you want to look at a state that is very much epitomizes what the rest of the country is like, i thin
and assuming he does that and is not decide to go for the budget, it will probably be bill nelson from florida who just wondering reelection. but here is my conspiracy- minded way is going on -- let's say ron wind and decided he really want a budget and not one energy, who would be chairman? mary landrieu -- a complete nightmare for the democrats -- coming from an oil-producing state she is really not in line with most of the party on the issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide not to long ago where i basically said, so, you guys will do everything you can to make sure it does not happen, right? even if patty murray decides not to take budget, you r will ron widen stay there -- their answer was, we do not think we will get to that point. which is estimated will do everything they can to prevent mary landrieu from taking the gavel. but she is close. and any other on the republican side. is it the republican leadership lansing at the thought about new ranking republican member is doing damage to the agenda? chuck grassley, inside -- installed judiciary, and orrin hatch? >> i think bo
, florida, where they had the republican convention, to charlotte, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that is 26 cd's. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is the president of the united states that has minimal interaction of congress, especially some of his own party. republicansorget and tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill, as all of you do all the time, and ask democratic members of congress, how much personal interaction do you have with the president? i hate giving political credit for anything, but they have that piece back in may that pointed out that the president, as of may, had not had a single conversation this year with the their kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget committee, where tom harkin, phone or in person, this year. now, you could talk about the party obstructionist, this and that, but if you are not talking to keep people in your own party. i checked with the unofficial historian of the contemporary presidency. the president played golf 104 times. the know h
vote was right within 1%. our models predicted the final vote in florida within .2%. >> you were very confident in your data partly because of the redundancy that you had. tell us about the data that you got every morning. >> we -- i hope we get in to my feelings on american polling very soon. especially the public ones. but we decided to go deep in to the stuff. we had our analytics team do several thousand calls -- >> what was the analytics team? >> it was a department in the campaign that used data across the campaign to make everyone's job better. >> how many people? >> over -- we had over 60 full time analytics people. and so every night they would do thousands of random sample calls. every night i had a look in all of the battleground states about what we were building and every night they would run 66,000 models at the campaign. >> that's been said before. when asked what i should ask you, what does that mean? >> we ran -- we build a model -- lots of people do similar versions, to run the campaign over and over. it gives us the statistical likelihood of carrying the percentage.
, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservatives in the republican party had pushed african-americans and hispanics together. they have a politics where sort of a nasty braggadocio, if you watch the primaries, where you have to be slashed and burn in how you attack your enemies, that very much does not go over with hispanics. some of the things that were said -- i have spoken to a well known latino pollster about this. he said a white person has friends and extended family -- that number is 8. a hispanic person has that number at about 50. if you are a slash and burn person, that is your style, you are not going to go over well with latinos. african americans and latinos have been pushed together. if you look at it in class terms, african-americans, the largest proportion of african americans and latinos are working class and have similar interests in terms of government. >> any additional questions? >> you were talking about the turnout during the midterms. you did no
florida who just won re-election. but this is my conspiracy-minded ways going on here. say that ron widen decided he really wanted budget and didn't want energy, guess who would be chairman. mary landrew. a complete nightmare for the democrats. she is innocent line with most of the party on those issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide where i said you guys will do everything you can to make sure that does not happen. even if patty murray does not take budget, you will make ron widen stay there they said we don't think we will get to that point. they will do everything they can from letting her take that gavel. >> any more on the republican side or is the republican leadership blanching at the new republican members doing damage to the agenda? i think most chuck pressley now newly installed at the judiciary. >> i think both established there over the past couple of years. same thing with hatch. i don't think they will have any problems, you know, continuing. >> hatch i think suggested when he was running in his highly contested primary this year that he would be less of the l
was within 1%. our modeling predicted our final vote in florida within 0.2%. >> you are confident in your data because of the redundancy you had. tell us about the date you got every night. >> i hope we get into my feelings on american polling, especially the public wants, we decided to go deep. we had an hour and alex team and do several thousand calls -- >> describe that. >> it was a department they used to data across the campaign to make everyone's job better. we had over 60 full-time analytics people. every night they would do thousands of random sample calls. every night i had to look in all of the battleground states and every night they would run, a 66,000 bottles of the campaign. >> that has been said before. what does that mean? >> we built a model similar to run the campaign over and over and over. it gives us a likelihood of caring that state. that allows our media team to spend money wiser in the battleground state. it means you run that many simulations to get a statistically relevant sample to make sure the data was right. every night they did that. then we had our talented
did get into school. florida is a good model. jeb bush is on another side of but he did a good job of forcing florida schools accountability. right now, several years later, the african-american kids' test scores in florida are on par with white kids in the rest of the country. by putting accountability in and giving some examples of opportunities for choice, he created an environment for these kids who are far behind and are now moving forward. some of the stuff done in new york was amazing, particularly the agree the principals academy, where he had a goal to get some of these strong principals to get into management sessions. he had a pipeline of them. those teachers put pressure on the traditional teaching pool to be better. the models are there. like it or not, most of education will be driven by state agendas. that is why the work you are doing here is so important. the state leaders have to be responsive to this issue. they need to put these kids first. we get them to do that, and we can change this. thank you. [applause] >> this is our custom, so you can write down your nex
-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politicians are much less responsive. it is easier to change your detergent than your congressman. i tell that to my cong
. romney by 58% to 40% in florida, 87% to 10% in colorado, at 80% to 17% in nevada, and 60% to 31% in virginia. we will go to one of the swing state in this election now. -- a swing states in this election now. caller: i love the statement that he made about self deportation. absolutely right. that is basically what the gop party is doing, not just to latinos, but everyone else. it is basically 47%. one of the things i would like to mention -- i wrote this over 20 years ago -- we had 36 men in mexico who controlled 54% of .exico's gross national product how much can they need to buy? i am sick and tired of the 36 men in mexico -- the number of men in the united states, canada, central america, south america, europe and asia, etc., whose lust for more greed and power is destroying the e ntire planet for man and beast. that bothers me. i feel that they spend their lives living off a bus. as long as we obey their roles, everything is ok. -- off of us. as long as we obey their rules, everything is ok. guest: i think that oftentimes, the process that is taken in -- to having a greater
are lagging behind. the initial reaction will be, and it's already started, i know in florida it's begun, and other places as well, kill the message. -- messenger. blame it on the test. blame it on sfpblet blame it on the former governor. there's all sorts of people you request blame -- you can blame this stuff on, but the simple fact is if we are going to restore american greatness, which we all want, whether we are liberals or conservatives, we have to start with higher expectations for the next generation. the states that retreat on rigor will be shortchanged their children and putting them at a competitive disadvantage, not only with kids from other states, but also with kids from other nations. if we have learned one lesson from reform it is this. we continually underestimate children. setting high standards and demanding results drive student academic gains. far from getting dumber, the students in kentucky are on their way to getting smarter. it will take some adjustment, but our kids will rise to the challenge of these new standards if we give them the opportunity and tools to do
today. saturday, sunday and monday. he was set to appear in iowa, virginia, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was doubled to campaign in ohio, went -- wisconsin, new hampshire and virginia. statewide polls differ on who was ahead in colorado and i what it should obama with a single digit lead in nevada and wisconsin. eight of nine surveys are the past week and a crucial ohio give obama a narrow edge. and we will be focusing on a violator in today's "washington journal." and our swing state series. we want to hear from voters and not-swing states. we want to hear how the election is playing out how you are. and this from the baltimore sun, charging more the candidates will go in the next couple days. ting where the candidates will go in the next couple days. again, the candidates focusing all of their attention in the days leading up to election day on as swing states. we will go to david and the kentucky on the democratic line. tell us a little bit about how the campaign is playing out in the kentucky, one of the non- swing states. caller: it is mostly just romn
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
-lehtinen, for so much time as she may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the the gentlewoman from florida is recognized for such time she may consume. ms. ros-lehtinen: i thank the gentleman from indiana for the time. i plan to vote for this bill, h.r. 6156, even though i remain strongly opposed to granting russia permanent normal trade relations or pntr, at this time. i would like to explain the reasons why. those who argued for granting russia pntr, which has until now been prevented by what is known as the jackson-vanik amendment, focus on the supposedly bilateral trade benefits. the issue that concerns me and many members is not trade but human rights. advocates of repeal say that the jackson-vanik amendment is outdated and is purely symbolic and therefore should be disregarded. but in the ira of human rights, madam speaker, symbols can have a very great importance. over the years jackson-vanik has become a sign of the continuing u.s. commitment to human rights in russia and elsewhere. repealing the amendment could very well be interpreted as an indication that our commitment is now w
florida again by insisting that the network, fox, was wrong in calling the election for obama. the fox number-cruncher's said, "no, you are wrong." -- the fox number-crunchers said, "no, you are wrong." i think his career in politics should be over, and show -- and so should dick morris's. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, and then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator, and he is writing a column for rupert murdoch's " wall street journal." host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: his time in american politics has come and gone. host: our guest is bill press. bill press. onawful election night proved you cannot buy momentum." guest: karl rove at one time talked about a total realignment, and in this one again, the republicans lost the white house. two elections in a row. they lost ground in the senate. they lost ground in the house. and then you have karl rove with this rosy look on his face saying, "we won." he said, "we had a good night." who believes that other than karl rove? they do need to do some real soul-searc
who's a republican caller. nancy, where are you joining us from? caller: i'm joining you from florida. host: well, welcome. go right ahead. caller: well, i've been watching this show, and i just really have a couple of comments to make. i am a republican. i did vote for romney, but the election's over, and i do think our republican representatives to represent the republicans of the party, and i kind of wish that president obama would have opened up his meetings to the mom and pops businesses and the franchises instead of all these big corporation names that are meeting aside from the unions that were there yesterday. i just don't feel that the $250,000 ceiling is fair, that those people struggle to employ people and to keep the communities going and restaurants and franchises and grossry stores and it does -- grocery stores and it does seem like the corporations are taking over the mom and pops, and i just hope the representatives in congress keep representing the republicans out here. . host: since you are a republican, what do you think about letting taxes increase on people who ma
southern florida, not an easy job. she is a mother, never an easy job. and she has decided yes, when asked, to be the chair of the party at the democratic national committee. never, ever an easy job. but she took it all on with grace and with strength and has done an incredible, incredible job and think about, i want you to think about what she has done at the helm of our great party. not only did she ensure the re-election of president barack obama but she did it by making sure that there was a constant conversation about what women were facing both economically and with their health care and with their lives every day, pulling us together, making sure every woman in this country knew what was at stake. and i don't know if anybody gives her credit for this but i will. i think she delivered florida, which is huge. but she has been an incredible leader and for our membership, someone to look at and we do see her as a role model for so many of us. we certainly hope that, i know she has three major jobs and i know the folks at emily's list are very much hoping she keeps all three jobs. becaus
of columbia, arizona, florida, and georgia. mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to add this report summary into the record. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. this election day, low-income americans, the working poor, middle income americans, every american spoke loud and clear. they voted for strengthening the middle class and putting people back to work. and they voted for congress to get back to doing the work of the american people. to strengthen our economy for all americans. to create economic opportunities that will lift millions of families out of poverty and into the middle class. most importantly, the american people voted to reject job-killing cuts and the attacks to medicare, medicaid, and social security. what they don't want is for our country to be rushed into urgent budget decisions by the false spread of so-called fiscal cliff. well, mr. speaker, i don't buy it. and the american people don't believe it, either. this economic and political gridlock is just another political cliff created by the hostage taking obstructionism of the t
working and most distinguished members when it comes to immigration reform, the gentleman from florida, mr. diaz-balart. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from florida is recognized for four minutes. mr. diaz-balart: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first thank mr. issa. i applaud the republican leadership for bringing this important bill to the floor. i think it's important we bring down the decibels and we talk about facts. this is an issue that the fashions are very high, but i think it's important to bring down the decibels and speak about facts. we know that america is home to some of the best universities on the planet. and because of that people from around the world, students from around the world, young people from around the world come to study in our universities, and then unfortunately when they are done we in essence show them the door out and they have to leave the country. and they leave the country and become the best, the toughest competitors to america enterprise. they create jobs elsewhere, not in the united states. talking about outsourcing. this is the mother of all
democrats have trouble getting. we will now when florida and virginia come in, those are two state torres. if we lose ohio we still have colorado and wisconsin. keep an eye and pennsylvania. it disappoints as everytime. the one thing about -- there have been tens of millions of dollars of ads run on that for months. it is hard to get out from under that. he does not have that same burden in pennsylvania. maybe they are able to steal something. colorado looks better bet they're all close enough at this point. whatever the pundits say did not matter. we know how most of these states are going to come out. the state's, who shows up will make a difference and we will not know until tomorrow night. >> explosive growth in northern virginia is something that you cannot ignore. i think obama by a hair in northern virginia. >> you mentioned jim matheson, hard to run against romney. where are you looking at -- >> we are dealing -- bob dole is one of the outstanding freshman members. he is such a quality guy and he is in a district that is -- has been altered. there are a number of seats that are n
. host: we are getting your thoughts on the fallout from that announcement. billy, lady lake, florida. caller: good morning. it is a real mixed bag of feelings about things like this. this guy is the head of the cia, and it took us months to find this out? i was trained as a military combat medic, vietnam, and i am gay. i worked in the surgery street -- suite of the recovery unit. two investigators remove me from that unit. each of them had a hand on my shoulder, one on my arm, parading me out of the hospital because they suspected i was gay. when it comes to things like this, i am sorry the gentleman has had problems, but the government never surprises me. host: thank you for the call from florida this morning. we also want to take you to anita, chapel hill, north carolina. caller: i was listening to your caller before may, he is -- before me, and he is absolutely right. i am muslim, very strict about things, and i think that people have a right to not practice religion here. they have a right to do things the way they feel comfortable doing it, which is called secular or religious
they can have the future. thank you. >> to gary in florida. >> i voted for obama and i see everything that has been going on. i am disabled. this obamacare thing is hitting me. it has made a difference in my prescriptions. it has made a difference in the care that i received. the thing that i see most, i grew up and i was a military brat. obama was kind of vacant. it to kim 50 days to react. he did not want help from other countries to take care of the gulf coast. it hit florida really hard. then that you had all the thing in libya and he decided to take off and go to vegas the next day. there's a lot of speculation about where they in the situation watching it and i think he took advantage of sandy -- and i'm not saying that in a sarcastic manner. he stood up and it finally acted like a president but a week before the election? where was he when everything else was going on that he should have been present and then the president and took care of things. shown as he was commander-in- chief rather than just sitting around and playing basketball and going on vacations. >> thank you. nex
. that had the good sense to land in florida in june instead of september in massachusetts, but then the -- that were kept out -- wiped out by the spanish, but we let that out of the history books. in the middle of the night, she killed her captors, realized she could get of bounty for indian scalps. she went back and scalped them, made her way to boston, where she was a heroine. the per se statue of an american mom and showed her with a hatchet in one hand and a scalp and the other. with a best-selling author, the most recent, "don't know much about the american presidents." >> the army chief of staff, general re odierno said there is incredible uncertainty across the globe. he talked about how the army is dealing with the threat. >> years ago the pentagon -- the auditorium had a podium that required a microphone. this user command equipment is really difficult. welcome to the center for strategic and international studies. that sounds real. all right. good morning, welcome to everyone in the room. welcome to our viewers on the web this morning. i'm david berteau, director
in the code. that takes the states like california and arizona and florida out of the business and i was telling us how we're going to raise hens and produce eggs. that is an important piece that has been a fight in this campaign, that has not had it not apply, but that is something we have to have in the farm bill, and that is what i want to get into conference by the end of the year. >> i hope if the farm bill comes to the floor is an open roll, the amendment process can take place. i expect the conservatives to -- i do not know if we have the votes for it -- but at least we will start that the debate, separating the food stamp provisions from the other policies. since i am surrounded by other states, the other gentleman would like to speak as well. >> speaking as one who campaign in support of the house bill, without apology, i can tell you the farmers of north dakota like the house bill just fine, and not only did they have an objection to $16 billion more in cuts to a program that has grown 50% in the last four years, it only amounts to a 2% cut in the food stamp program, they l
not to be doing anything new. if you look back, 1961, the court decided a case. hoyt v. florida. she was what we would call a battered woman. one day, her philandering husband had humiliated her to the breaking point. she spied her son's baseball bats in the corner of the room. with all her might, she brought it down on her husband head. he fell to the floor and that was the end of the argument, at the end of the husband, and the beginning of the murder prosecution. so gwendolyn hoyt thought, if there were women on the jury, they might better understand her state of mind. even if they did not acquit her of the murder charge, they might come in with a verdict of manslaughter. she was convicted of murder by an all-male jury. when the case came to the supreme course, we do not understand what this complaint is about. women have the best of all possible worlds. they're not on the jury rolls, but if they want to serve, they can for the asking. think of how many men would sign up if they did not have to. she was told this and was dumbfounded. they did not understand her plight. this was in 1961. the l
from florida. mr. nugent: mr. speaker, and to my good friend from colorado, we agree on so many issues. particularly as it relates to immigration reform. we agree. i think this is the first step in regards to where we need to go. you have sold a very persuasive argument in regards to why it is so important so important that we have a stem vee is program. -- visa program. while it's important to us to keep that brainpower we educated in the united states, keep them here in this country to support our businesses, and our manufacturers so we can be more competitive on a global market, you have made my case on that. and i'll agree with you that this immigration system that we have is broken. i don't know -- i wasn't here two years ago or four years ago when the democrats were in power in both the house and senate and the presidency and they moved nothing forward that we're talking about today. disappointing when you have all the levers of government and don't accomplish anything as it relates to this. and now we want to turn around and say that this is a flawed bill. at the ent of the day
of -- in thousands of pages of information ended up on a florida socialite in secret emails involving the head of the c.i.a. and a top general in afghanistan and the fact that the federal bureau of investigation agent who was complaining to you stepped out of the chain of command and went to a house republican leader rather than anyone else, do you think that's a potentially greater national security threat like you're talking about? >> i say that's one of the dumbest questions i've ever heard. there's four dead americans. there's four dead americans. not a socialite, not a socialite, i'm answering your question. do you want me to answer your question or do you want to interrupt? which do you want? there's four dead americans. the lives of other americans were put in jeopardy. this is a matter of four dead americans. i think that the other issue raised is very serious. i think it deserves a thorough and complete investigation. but it does not rise to the level of an attack on american consulate that took four american lives. and i'm sorry if i was -- >> do you think it's a security threat? >>
